Scout Spotlight continues to feature elite football recruiting targets from around the country in the 2016 class.
Up next is four-star tight end Jamal Pettigrew from St. Augustine High School in New Orleans. Pettigrew originally committed to Les Miles and LSU on Jan. 11.
In this 60-second exclusive Spotlight video, Pettigrew displays prowess not only as a pass-catcher but as a run-blocker from the tight end position, stressing how important it is for him to excel in both aspects.
The cousin of Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew, Jamal also shares what career field interest him when it comes time for life after football.
Interviewed by Scout, the rangy 6-foot-5, 225-pound Pettigrew explains why he can be the next great dual-purpose tight end in Baton Rouge.
